It was a really good show .. far exceeding my expectations (which were quite low).

Disappointed to say I can't make this show ... and per their calendar, they seldom leave Texas, so I may never see them.

Tabernacle is much better than seeing someone in an arena/amphi-theater/ festival.
I don't care too much for Lakewood Amphi.
Variety Playhouse (Little Five Points) is good, especially if they don't set up folding chairs in the pit.

I find that when the discussion of spirits comes up in a diverse group, there is always at least one person who recounts a firsthand experience. The spirit is usually a close relative and the stories I've heard have always been pleasant and soothing (not evil like in the movies).

One day you're listening to pop country on the radio. Then you discover Blackberry Smoke (or Corey Smith) and you think, "Wow, this is so much better."
